Update validating xp dreams chat dating
Both SP2 and SP3 were installed on both computers as part of the XP installations. IMO, you should have attempted it as soon as the install with the primary XP disc was complete. But since you mentioned that "SP2 and SP3 were installed on both computers as part of the XP installations" it seems that you may have waited until after you installed the SP's. forgive if I missed something, or got confused somewhere...1.
Also changing with this update is the installation process.
BTW, there was another part of your question which I failed to answer.
I have disks for SP1, SP2 and SP3 which I purchased directly from Microsoft.
Is it a case of the validation process not running, or are you getting the 'not legal' pop up2. I'm wondering if it was an e Bay purchase, whether the product key accompanying it has since been blacklisted.
Depends upon how far back we're going, but if it's XP Pro, there used to be a loads of counterfeit copies on e Bay with a volume licence key, since blacklisted.3 Re XP: Until recently, it had been years before I did an XP reinstall, but had a couple just recently.
